26th Annual ICNA Convention
The Islamic Circle of North America established in 1971 is part of the Muslim Brotherhood network in the U.S. and is composed primarily of Muslim supporters of South Asian descent. It is allied to the radical Jamaat-e-Islami in Pakistan and Bangladesh. From July 6 to 8, 2001, in Cleveland, Ohio, ICNA held its 26th annual convention under the title "Islam for Peace and Justice: Palestine, Kashmir, and Imam Jamil." As part of a fundraising dinner, ICNA member Munir el-Kassem, from Canada, called on the crowd to $10,000 each towards ICNA because "We need to accumulate enough with actions to deserve to go home safely. And we know what I mean by home, not the home of this duniya (this world), but the home that we all yearn for: the home of al-Akhira (the next world). If you really want to have that you should do jihad with your wealth."
